Midnight Traveler at the Floralee Hark Cohen Cinema

When the Taliban puts a bounty on Afghan director Hassan Fazili's head, he is forced to flee the country with his wife and two young daughters. Capturing the family's uncertain journey firsthand, Fazili documents their harrowing trek across numerous borders revealing the danger and uncertainty facing refugees seeking asylum juxtaposed with the unbreakable love shared amongst the family on the run.

What The Critics Are Saying:

In showing such a personal, unmeditated view of the global migration crisis through one family's story, "Midnight Traveler" is a timely, essential film.                    
Vanessa H. LarsonWashington Post

It is the gift of "Midnight Traveler" to allow us to feel this family's fate in the pit of our stomachs. If the plight of refugees has ever seemed abstract, this film makes sure you know how real it is.
Kenneth TuranLos Angeles Times

It achieves its mission of putting an intimate, human face on a seemingly overwhelming, faraway subject.
